ORCAS Google Hangout

Scientists in the Field | Live in Your Classroom!

Monday, 25 January 2016

11:00-12:00 pm EST  |  9:00-10:00 am MST

Sign up to participate in an interactive question and answer session with the O2/N2 Ratio and CO2 Airborne Southern Ocean Study (ORCAS) scientists and project operations staff supporting the field campaign in Punta Arenas, Chile. The ORCAS measurements will improve understanding of the present day biogeochemical drivers of Southern Ocean air-sea CO2 and related gas fluxes, laying the groundwork for better mechanistic representation of feedbacks to climate change. Project PIs and operations staff will be on the Google Hangout ready to answer questions about the project, field operations and logistics, and what's it like to be involved in a field campaign of this caliber. Discussion will be focused towards undergraduate and graduate level classes.

Space is limited to 15 classes, please register ahead of time by emailing Alison Rockwell. To better facilitate the Google Hangout, email class questions ahead of time and we will do our best to address them during the discussion in real-time.
